Hi, I have avoided #introductions for the longest time. Mainly because I dislike having to sum myself up in a bio. I learnt in the other place that if you do so, it will just be used against you so I left it blank to infuriate those who would.
But this is a nicer place.
I'm a father of 1x lovely 4 year old with ADHD and autism who never stops. Husband of @Tarale who is trying to get diagnosed and help for autism, and me who doesn't see the point at my age of bothering and probably is neurodivergent... but I ain't gonna spend anymore time on it.
I enjoy spirited debate and through the years am both at once someone who can negotiate and probably doesn't know when to quit.
I care deeply about fairness, transparency and privacy - My latest project is twitter.com/OpenWelfare - coordinating freedom of information requests for the greater good.
read more from @asherwolf here about it:
I plan on integrating mastodon into it :)
I also have many other projects, probably too many of them.
I dabble with music, love VR gaming, old things, listening to vinyl, and want to see #mastodon flourish because I believe it is the future of the "town square" - but it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
@Posty @Tarale @asherwolf thank you so very much for the OpenWelfare project. I have been trying to find a project I can contribute my limited but enthusiastic energy to in between migraines. I am hoping to start tomorrow presuming I get some sleep tonight.
Also now reading your #introduction it is much clearer why I enjoy following you on here and the other place, I can relate a lot. I look forward to more collaboration :)
